Week THIRTEEN in the Challenge to Build Habits Supporting Racial Equity.
November is Native American Heritage Month
How many people know that Native American children were separated from their families and sent to boarding schools as a way to “civilize” them into US society? Read about it here.
Last week, Campolindo hosted an inspiring book group discussing late Congressman John Lewis’ book “Across That Bridge”. For more on John Lewis, take a listen to Terry Gross’ “Fresh Air” interview on NPR. Acalanes DEI is hosting the next book group on February 4. Stay tuned for book selection!
This Week is CARE week!
This is a week dedicated to education and dialogue around equity, and is organized by the diversity board within the leadership class, together with different clubs and student leaders. Check out the details in the Student Activities section and encourage your student to opt in!
